Re: [Computerbank] 225q, Ararat and a new project in NE-VIc

G'day Kylie, I am thinking of coming to Melbourne on perhaps the 8th or 9th
of January.
Are you likely to be there then, or somebody else.  Nothing of importance,
just thought I'd drop in and say LO.
I will meet Bruce, whom I havent met yet, and I want to drop an old box into
225q and meet Sam as well.
I'm sort of okay with RH5 through to RH7.1   And Mandrake 6.0.  I am not a
Linux specialist/guru.  But I get by.
Hardware, I am pretty okay with, but some of the old boards, I like to have
a handbook for, because users do all sorts of funny things with the jumpers.
